Tonight was awesome. I mean thinking back to some other Top 9’s in other seasons, there’s just no comparison. It’s going to get really hard in the next 2-3 weeks to say goodbye to some of these constants. I wouldn’t be surprised if many of the top 10 got contracts. But let me not get too ahead of myself. Here’s a rundown of tonight.
Jac0b- No one can deny that Jac0b can sing but I think if anyone is a single act show it’s him. All drama, all the time.
Casey – Yes! I was so excited to see Casey with his bass tonight. Randy is totally right that Casey is making it cool. Because when Casey is playing it he sounds cool. There’s a comfort level and sassiness he gets when he’s with it. Awesome, awesome.
Lauren – Not my favorite of hers but she did well. I’m ready to see her funky/sassy side show through again.
Scotty – I am telling you I was giggling like a school girl watching him sing Elvis. And that’s about all I can say about that.
Haley – I think I may have enjoyed last week better. I felt like she was screaming this one. And really, I still don’t know what kind of album she would make.
James – Could be my favorite of his so far. I was a little disappointed we didn’t get to see him rock on rock week but his gamble paid off with the end of that song. Gorgeous!
Stefano – I could barely pay attention. I’m just not a Stefano fan and just don’t see what Jennifer is fawning over.
Pia – I heard some really great stuff in that song. Maybe even some Christina. Definitely in the right direction but I’m with jennifer, there’s more in there.
Paul – I love Paul. He’s so fun and his voice is so unique. He’s got such an old soul that Johnny Cash was a perfect fit. Loved it.
Favorites: Casey, James, Scotty
In trouble: Stefano
